on the issues that unite us. the bipartisan nature of the nga allows us to have very candid conversations with our colleagues from across the country. that is what we will be doing this weekend. while each governor has his or her own agendas, we want to remain sustainable. federal spending cut means states will receive less. it can undermine our budget and slow the economic growth in our states. as it stands, state economies are slowly recovering and we are returning to the revenues we collected back in 2008. we believed in flexible federalism. as we continue to work with congress and the administration, governors are committed to a collaboration to maintain and promote a balanced system. we have as congress and the initiation to keep four points in mind. this should produce savings for the federal and state. it cannot be accomplished by shifting costs from the federal government to the states or by imposing unfunded mandates. state should be given increased flexibility. congress should not impose efforts as this. many of the decisions that affect our health care are made in the states, e

't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen
